With Great Scalability Comes Great Responsibility

This is a story of how I took down one of our vendor’s services with an innocent serverless application. I wanted to retrieve data from one of our monitoring platforms to analyze SPS Commerce’s software performance. Initially, I wrote a script to collect the data using python multiprocessing....

Designing Services for Resilience Testing @Netflix

As an industry, we focus on designing microservices for availability. However, we don’t tend to speak about enabling these same services for resiliency testing. In a perfect world, you wouldn’t need resiliency testing, but that’s not the reality we are currently facing. This talk covers...

The Evolution of Reddit.com's Architecture

What's the focus of the work that you're doing at Reddit?

We're doing a mishmash of things right now. At the core of it is building an environment that allows the product team at Reddit to act. That is, stuff that the users want to see, and is something they can feel confident about shipping—and to let them do that as quickly as possible, while balancing that with performance.

Serverless and Chatbots: A Match Made in the Cloud

Who is the audience for this talk?

I'm talking to an experienced developer, but probably someone who is just getting started with chatbots (potentially hasn't even done anything with chatbots yet).
